We recently used the water meter usage calculator on United Utilities website to see if we could save on our Domestic Unmeasured account which is based on rateable value of the house, we live in a four bedroom house, but as there is usually only the two of us, we don’t use as much water as we once did. Although they all pop home from time to time!
We found out we could be saving around £185 per year so decided that we gave it a go
The new meter was fitted in about an hour & was one of the new Automatic Meter Reading ones (AMR) & it is a water meter that can be read remotely rather than by an individual who visits your home, a smart water meter, so no waiting in for a man (or woman) to come & read the meter.
If we are not happy with the water meter we can go back to our previous Domestic Unmeasured account, United Utilities gives us two years to decide, after the two years are up there is no going back.
I think this could be useful for Great Nanna Doll, as she is on her own, so doesn’t use much water at all. I think I will have to discuss it with her.
Are you on a water meter? Have you found it a money saving exercise? How much could you save if you used the water usage calculator?
